News Network: Nevada - President Obama's call to overhaul the nation's immigration system in Las Vegas last week is an indicator of how critical immigration changes are for Nevada. The state is home to a large population of politically active Latinos pressuring their state representatives to grant more rights to legal and illegal immigrants in the 2013 legislative session, which begins this week. We'll talk about immigration and some of the other major issues the Nevada legislature is planning to tackle in this year's session with Reno Gazette-Journal Political Reporter Ray Hagar and Reno News & Review Reporter Dennis Myers.

Wellness Within - What do patients, survivors and families do to cope with the stress of cancer? Or any other long-term, serious illness? A local non-profit is trying to help. Wellness Within is a Mind-Body Wellness Center that uses a combination of research-based healing therapies, such as breathing, movement, drawing, biofeedback, meditation, journaling, guided imagery and self-care techniques, to give people the tools they need to get through it. We'll talk about it with Patti Brown, founder and executive director of Wellness Within. And we'll hear how two different people are utilizing the center.

Fred Krupp - For many people, 2012 highlighted the need for America to start combating climate change more intensely. Superstorm Sandy ravaged the East Coast, a drought starved crops in the Midwest, and unseasonably warm weather in December perplexed Northern California. The CEO of the Environmental Defense Fund, Fred Krupp, has been paying attention to climate change and each state's plans to curb it in the coming years. Krupp is currently in the middle of a trip to Northern California and joins us to discuss the state's new cap and trade program and its recent foray into the oil exploration method most commonly known as "fracking."

Band of the Golden West - The Commanders Jazz Ensemble is an Air Force band from Travis Air Force Base that provides the soundtrack for any major military event. They also play some pretty darn good jazz.
